Beware the Nauga

0

Back in the l960s when the watchword was "better living through chemistry,"  furniture manufacturers created an impervious vinyl upholstery and named it Naugahyde. 

To encourage consumers to buy it, some advertising folks came up with the Naugahyde monster campaign:  "The Nauga is ugly.  But his vinyl hide is beautiful."   Those clever Mad Men!

I used to work with a guy who had an off-beat sense of humor: he claimed he had his wife in tears by telling her that the hides had to come from baby Nauga, no more than two days old, but the better ones were fetuses aborted a few days before birth.

Here is a photo of an adorable little boy and his Nauga, circa 1969 (the boy is me)

you wonder how many Naugas had to give their all.

None! According to nauga.com:

Q: With all the cruelty in the world, how can you kill those cute little Naugas just for their hydes?
A: We don't. Naugas shed their hydes without harm to themselves, making Naugahyde the Cruelty-Free Fabric.

Wasn't there a joke in the first Leisure Suit Larry game about Naugas? Something like "The door is covered in Naugahyde, and you wonder how many Naugas had to give their all."
